Yeah, the reference design EVGA 970 is quite short. Check out the green molecule arc mini r2 build as he needed a short card for that, I think he got the superclocked model with the reference blower cooler.

End game will be a full cover block incorporated into the h220x loop.

Mount the 120 rear outside behind the case. Otherwise find a place for it inside elsewhere.

Is the Define S the same size as the R5? Or is it shorter or narrower?

R5: 232 x 451 x 521mm
S: 233 x 451 x 520mm

So basically they are the same. Inside diameters may vary depending how motherboard tray is placed. But as both can hold cpu cooler up to 180mm high, I guess their motherboard tray is placed identically.

Hi guys, thinking of rigging up two AIO solutions on my R5 for GPU/CPU. I don't want to mount anything up top as I like the noise insulation there. I'm also using the lower drive cage with 3 magnetic HDDs in there and one SSD on the back of the motherboard tray. Plan on going with a Kraken X31 as rear exhaust for GPU. Not sure what to go for with the CPU though. Would like to get a 240/280mm rad such as H100i, but don't know if it will fit considering my needs.

Appreciate any thoughts. Thanks!

Had a quick question for those guys with the R5/S and Watercooled. Right now i am seeing my temps get pretty high. With the filter and front panel on, the CPU will hit 70 degrees while gaming and the gpu's will hit 60C.

The moment i remove the filter and front panel all the temps drop an additional 10 degrees C. Is this normal for you guys?

Hi guys, thinking of getting a Define S soon, need a decent watercooling case. I have a 200mm long PSU, would it fit alright?

Dust filter and the door restrict airflow. Business as usual. What kind of cooling setup do you have? Rads, fans, placement. And whatnot.

Well let's see what the product page says..

Quote:
ATX PSUs up to 180/170 mm with a bottom 120/140mm fan installed; When not using any bottom fan location longer PSUs up to 300mm can be used
If you're not planning to populate the bottom fan spot you're good.

Here is my beloved R4 in white.





I'll play. Currently I am working on a PSU shroud for mine and trying to figure out where I can stick a 360mm radiator without heavily modifying the case. It seems as though I will be able to put the end of the radiator inside the 5.25 bay since I don't use those.
